3.2 Configure Shibboleth SP - attribute-map.xml

The configuration file attribute-map.xml tells the Shibboleth software which attribute types exists in a federation and how to decode and present that information to applications.

Within the SWAMID community we have defined an SWAMID standard attribute-map.xml for Shibboleth Service Provider 2.x. This attribute-map.xml is more extensive than the attribute-map.xml that is part of the distribution. Please replace the installed attribute-map.xml with the file that is available on this page.

Important information

Please note that every attribute in attribute-map.xml with result in a header sent to backend if ShibUseHeaders is enabled (two if metadataAttributePrefix is defined). If you get too many, remove unused attributes from attribute-map.xml or modify backend header limits (LimitRequestFields/LimitRequestFieldSize in Apache HTTPD Server, maxHeaderCount/maxHttpHeaderSize in Apache Tomcat Connectors).
